Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 63

February 1, 2016 |

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 63 days

According to the fantastic resource that is Baseball-Reference.com, 129 players have worn the number 63 in a Major League game during their careers. The Cleveland Indians have had five players from that list use the digits, with three of them providing some of the best career statistics of a number 63 to date.

Eric Bell was the first Cleveland Indians player to wear 63 when he took the mound for the Tribe as a reliever in 1991 and 1992, working in 17 games, making just one start, and posting a 4-2 record with a 3.78 ERA in those two years. Andrew Lorraine brought the number back to begin the next decade during his ten-game stay as a reliever for the club in 2000. Once Victor Martinez debuted the number in his first dozen Major League games in 2002, he set the trend for excellence for the number in Indians history. Read More

Masterson Extension Offer a Lucky Miss One Year Later

There’s an old adage, “some of the best trades are the ones that are never made.”

It’s probably even more truer in free agency and the Indians are no better example. Two years ago the Tribe surprised its fan base and much of baseball when it spent an uncharacteristic $112 million on free agents Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, Brett Myers and Mark Reynolds. Almost immediately it was obvious that Myers was a bad decision, and after a storm of homers in the first six weeks, Reynolds too was let go before 2013 ended.

A winter ago, the Indians were much more quiet, signing David Murphy and John Axford. Each were supposed to be veteran presence, lightening the load and pressure on the younger players around them. Instead, Axford was replaced as closer by Cody Allen after six weeks and Murphy had his second straight disappointing season. Mistakes in free agency can be costly and it has cost the Tribe in excess of $130 million over the last two winters. It’s no wonder the Indians have not been linked to any free agents this winter, not to mention the roster is full of players under team control for the foreseeable future.
